Janet Fox is the author of several books for young readers. “Some of my books are set in mystical places,” she writes on her website. “Some of my books are about mystical events.”
The April workshop is not just limited to writers of books for children and young adults. What Janet has to convey, in terms of craft, applies to all fiction books.
“I’m calling it a next-tier presentation, designed for writers who are stuck,” she says, “or have a messy first draft, or need to understand the revision process.”
Janet’s fascination with history, mystery, romance, and adventure meld into her works of fiction. Her most recent book, Volcano Dreams, a non-fiction picture book from Web of Life Books, was published in September 2018. She has also written The Charmed Children of Rookskill Castle (Viking 2016), plus Sirens, Forgiven, and Faithful, three young adult novels from Penguin.
The workshop will be held from 9 am to noon on Saturday, April 20, in the conference room of the Center for the Arts, Glenwood Avenue entrance. Registration is limited to 12, so pre-registration is highly recommended. Light snacks will be provided, but please bring your own beverage and writing implements.
Support for this workshop comes from Arts for All!, with monies from the Town of Jackson and Teton County. The grant is administered by: Center of Wonder
